Charting impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

The Goals of the Antelope Valley Boys and Girls Club are all based around our mission of enabling all young people, especially those that need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Specifically, we aim to help young people grow to achieve three priority outcomes:<br/><br/>1. Academic Success<br/>Young people that drop out of school are significantly less likely to secure a good job, earn an adequate salary and have a promising future. With this being true, high school graduation is an important goal for all Club members.<br/><br/>2. Good Character and Citizenship<br/>Possessing good character is an integral part of becoming a productive, responsible and caring citizen.<br/><br/>3. Healthy Lifestyles<br/>The health habits developed as a child and a teenager affect the individual’s health and quality of life throughout adulthood.

In order to achieve our three priority outcomes the Antelope Valley Boys and Girls Club follows the Formula for Impact. <br/><br/>The Formula For Impact is as follows:<br/><br/>Young People Who Need Us Most + Outcome Driven Club Experience = Priority Outcomes<br/><br/>The strategies for executing an Outcome Driven Club Experience is implementing high-yielding activities and programming surrounding our five key focus areas of youth development. Our five key focus areas are:<br/><br/>• Character and Leadership Development<br/>• Arts and Cultural Education<br/>• Education and Career Development<br/>• Sports, Fitness and Recreation<br/>• Health and Life Skills<br/><br/>Basing our activities and programming around these five areas of focus along with regular Club attendance ensure that we provide an outcome driven club experience that helps youth reach our 3 priority outcomes.

We are able to impact youth's lives in a positive manner for numerous reasons. <br/><br/>As part of a nationally recognized brand we have access to many corporate, government and major foundation resources. Our national affiliation also ensures checks and balances with-in our organization, provides us with guidance, marketing and programming resources. <br/><br/>In addition to this, locally:<br/><br/>• The majority of our sites are in neighborhoods and schools where more than 90% of families qualify for free or reduced lunch, so we are able to effectively meet our target population.<br/><br/>• We have strong relationships with local government and school districts that allow us to keep our overhead costs low so more of our focus remains on providing quality and outcome-driven programming.<br/><br/>• Corporate partnerships with local Aerospace companies such as Lockheed and Northrop Grumman help our Club kids gain an extra boost through educational programming focused on STEM and Robotics.<br/><br/>• Partnerships with local media outlets including radio, television and newspapers allow us to stay in the forefront of our community while allowing us the opportunity to publicize our Club member’s accomplishments.

In order to track and analyze the outcomes and impacts of our programming our members are surveyed yearly. This is part of Boys and Girls Club of America's outcome tracking initiative called National Youth Outcome Initiative or NYOI.<br/><br/>The biggest indicator that shows whether or not we have accomplished our mission is our Average Daily Attendance or ADA. Youth vote with their feet. Over the past five year our ADA has increased. <br/><br/>Some other key performance indicators (KPI) that cover our three priority outcomes are as follows:<br/><br/>Academic KPI<br/><br/>• Number of days a member skips school<br/>• Number of members that expect to go to a 4 year college<br/>• Number of members that say school work is meaningful and important<br/>• Number that state they do their best in school<br/><br/>Character and Leadership KPI<br/><br/>• How many fighting in the past year (teens)<br/>• How many have volunteered in the past year (teens) <br/>• How many members feel they have displayed optimal conflict resolution<br/><br/>Healthy Lifestyles KPI (teens surveyed over one year)<br/><br/>• How many have not smoked cigarettes <br/>• How many have not drank alchohol <br/>• How many have not used any drugs <br/>• How many have abstained from sex

Through a joint study with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Los Angeles County an exhaustive research study was conducted by California Lutheran University’s Damooei Global Research (DGR) to assess the impact of the Club. DGR extracted the following percentages and figures from its research results for the Los Angeles County Alliance of the Boys and Girls Club as it relates to the Antelope Valley Clubs. <br/><br/>Member Statistics<br/>• 93.3% feel safe at the Club<br/>• 75.5% believe one of the important reasons for their good attendance record is their membership participation with the Club<br/>• 93.8% agree that going to college is very important to their future and success<br/><br/>Parent Statistics<br/>• 90.5% of parents agreed that their child has a greater ability to make friendships<br/>• 87.5% agreed that their child’s grades have improved<br/>• 82.6% agreed that sending their child to the Club enables them to keep jobs<br/><br/>Community Benefits<br/>• Club members have lower teen pregnancy and motherhood rates which create economic savings<br/>• Club members resolve conflicts and become more peaceful with their own peers and others in their communities<br/>• Being a member of the Club promotes volunteerism in the region<br/><br/>The overall economic impact in the community is astonishing. According to the DGR study, for every $1 donated, the Antelope Valley community generates $16.42 of positive economic impact.<br/><br/>In the 24 years Antelope Valley Boys and Girls Club has been operating we have served over 79,000 youth and went from one Club site to 18 Club and school sites. Our dedication to quality and outcome based programming has made us the number one youth services provider in the Antelope Valley.
